Still some work left Do some more metal work, then spray paint the parts black
WOW! clean and slick! i have that same motherboard arriving today, how does it OC in your opinion?
LOVE THE SLEEVING JOB!! Very nice build...That looks absolutely clean.
Tnx I run my i7 950 @ 4.2 Ghz atm, havent had time to play around with much OC yet so check the Evga forums for more info
Still working on this one:
GTS450 is temp.
I sleaved most of the wires but like I said I ran out of sleaving. I will pick some up and finish it.
It's a NZXT Zero 2 full tower case.
A couple more shots (UV tubing) and old 4870 cf cards
Is that Fractal Design's case any good ?
Clean as fuhh. Very nice.
I think mines a Stanley, but something like this would work: http://www.acehardware.com/product/index.jsp?productId=3872929&cp=2568450.2628082.2629228
That, plus a 5" hole saw and a 1 1/2" hole saw.
wow nice build, nice case, how is the airflow? and can you remove that 180mm top fan??
i'm probally going to get one, with a Thermalright Ultra-120 eXtreme Rev.C and a small mod, so can put my Noiseblocker NB-BlackSilentPro PK 3 1700rpm, 140mm push/pull
Just got a few new toys in. gonna have me some fun tonight updating my storage
Ok i got my board today and it works but im not happy at all, should i ask for a refund? The Heatsinks for the NB and VRMs looks like it was taken off and attempted to either use paint thinner or some type of sanding cause NB has some bad scratches on it. Also the board is warped alittle around the CPU, This could be from the previous owner/s overheating the cpu area or it had a huge cooler that was tighten too tight. All in all it works, i reset the bios and then installed two Gskill sticks and a Corsair stick for 3x1gb tri channel and i ran IBT for 10 runs on max mem and threads with stock cooler and it didnt become unstable.
This is what it looks like from factory
This is how it came
The last of my pictures enjoy
what the fuck, srsly!!!!!
they must have painted those sinks, i dont think they have that colory underneath it, think they are aluminium, and if they had used painthinner, the x58 logo wouldnt be there
If they were painted, how come the text is still in the original red color?
Besides from being weird, I like the black and gold combo. They should make some boards like that.
arent they meant to be anodised, which is different to being painted? could that explain it?
What the hell???
This was an open-box item from Newegg?
I have the same board for one of my crunchers (was actually the first X58 board I purchased a year and half ago) and have loved the stability. One reason I chose it was because of the looks, second was the price at that time
I think I would ask for a refund if you are worried about the looks. Could also effect resale value down the rode...
Here's a shot of Phase 2 of my new computer:
Yeah it needs it's own power grid but it plays crysis maxxed out...
as long as that sig with the evga logo is gone, you can get your own power grid!
I believe im going to keep it!
oh how i approve of your rams pic
Nice shot of the ram though
